Moby cancels book tour after Natalie Portman controversy


New equipment, bigger budget key

“I have a lot of admiration for Natalie, for her intelligence, creativity, and animal rights activism, and I hate that I might have caused her and her family distress,” Moby wrote on Instagram on Saturday.

In the book, the 53-year-old artiste claimed he briefly dated the actor after she “flirted” with him in his dressing room at one of his shows.

I also fully recognize that it was truly inconsiderate of me to not let her know about her inclusion in the book beforehand, and equally inconsiderate for me to not fully respect her reaction. Portman, 37, has rejected his claims, saying she was not flirting with him but the musician was instead being “creepy” towards her. “I was surprised to hear that he characterised the very short time that I knew him as dating because my recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school,” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK

What next for Defence? But before I do I want to apologise again, and to say clearly that all of this has been my own fault. I am the one who released the book without showing it to the people I wrote about.
